Toronto Daystarter: June, 1, 2015

Here's what you need to know for Monday, June 1, 2015:


After a warm week, temperatures dropped off on Sunday and will continue to be well below the seasonal average for today. A high of about 16 C is expected on the day with lots of clouds and a 40 per cent chance of showers later in the afternoon. 

Warmer temperatures will return on Tuesday and stay with us through the rest of the work week with lots of sunshine expected. 


TTC service is running mostly on time this morning. The elevator from the eastbound platform to concourse bus level at Dundas West station is out of service. 

GO Transit trains and buses are running on time. At Burlington station, there will be no elevator access from the south side of the station until fall 2015 because of construction.

Toronto Pearson airport and Billy Bishop airport downtown are reporting that air traffic is moving on time. ​

Teachers' job action

Ontario's public elementary school teachers will ramp up job action today, after nine months without collective agreements. The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario announced work-to-rule action last month.

Since then schools have remained open and extracurricular activities and field trips have continued, but teachers have not been performing certain administrative duties. The union says it will begin further withdrawing from Ministry of Education meetings, workshops and mandated meetings with principals today.

Uber in court

About 500 taxi drivers are expected to participate in a protest of ride sharing service Uber in front of City Hall this morning. The demonstration will begin near Yonge St. and Queens Quay and make its way north up Yonge. 

The protest coincides with the beginning of a three-day court hearing on the city's request for an injunction to permanently block Uber's operations in Toronto, as has been done in some other Canadian cities like Vancouver. 

The issue has divided council, though Mayor John Tory has repeatedly come out against the proposal of an injunction.

Christian law school in Toronto court

A Christian university in British Columbia that forbids sexual intimacy outside heterosexual marriage will head to an Toronto court this week. It wants graduates of its yet-to-open law school to be able to practice in the province. Trinity Western University is asking for a judicial review of a decision last year by Ontario's law society to refuse its proposed school accreditation.

Peacock update

In what is maybe the biggest news of the past week, the peacock that escaped from its enclosure at the High Park Zoo is still on the loose. Zoo officials and residents in the city's west end became concerned Sunday after sightings of the brilliantly-coloured bird mysteriously stopped. It's not clear what has happened to the peacock, but zoo officials said its possible it has returned to its enclosure on its own. CBC Toronto will keep you updated on its whereabouts as soon as we learn more.
